Hollywood came to Hainault on Friday as a hospital charity held its first black-tie Christmas ball.
Worthy of an Oscar, the King George and Queen’s Hospitals Charity put on a show stopper of an event to raise vital funds to improve the experience of patience, visitors and staff.
Around 388 people attended the ball held at The Willows, Forest Road, Hainault, and a whopping £46,000 was raised through ticket sales, sponsorship, raffle tickets and auctions.
“The ball was a resounding success,” said a charity spokeswoman.
Top lots included Drake and Take That concert tickets.
“We are extremely proud of everything the hospitals provide. We do not subsidise core NHS services but listen to the ideas, concerns and innovations of hospital staff, patients and visitors and try to turn these into reality.
